tooo late.............

bit sad/devastated at the moment................I showed you these girls back in September here when we culled the rest of the mob..........these were joined with a bull and were to be kept to add to our breeders........well they are currently up for sale.............something else has to go and these are the next group................I am even more sad about this as Mr Chooky and I went thru and selected what to keep together..........it's usually Mr Chooky and his Dad but he was out of action at the time so I got the job............I feel more attached to them........we need to check the water where they are ever couple of days and to save Mr Chooky that job I have usually been there at least once a week if not more often checking they were right............
When we got the rain last week the other properties only got 18-20mls..
mind you the rain we got here is fizzling out too............
there is a chance this week but it's so up and down the forecast it will probably be nothing once again....................no where near enough to do anything....................would be nice to be able to stop feeding EVERYTHING........as the days tick by it gets closer to me running out of feed............so we have to get rid of some more stock...
%%%%
Will be interesting to see what the Federal government announce today but considering so much of the country is drought it is about time they got there act together.............
....whatever they announce today won't save thee girls.............
now to wait til Friday auction to see what price we get for them - I can guarantee it won't be what they are worth.  :(
.....Catch you later
